Circle Time: We read The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen. We sang songs about fish, practiced color words with colorful flannel board fish, and played with fish puppets.
Art Activity: Paper Bag Fish
Materials Needed: A paper lunch sack, plain paper bag, crumpled newspaper to stuff the sack, glue, pipe cleaners, and decoration material such as glitter glue, googly eyes, sequins or metallic confetti, markers, colored paper etc...
1. Stuff half the sack with crumpled newspaper.
2. Twist on a pipe cleaner above the stuffing to form the body and tail.
3. Glue on a pipe cleaner mouth and eyeball.
4. Decorate the tail and body.
Snack: Goldfish crackers and fish shaped sandwiches (created with a cookie cutter)
Playtime Activity: We played fishing games with magnetic poles and fish. You can find directions to make these here, but we already had enough between all the families.
